As 2020 draws to a close, many people are saying ‘Amen.’ Amid all the terrible events, much has been left undone.
That is an overly dramatic introduction to a catch-up post.
Thank you to everyone who keeps up with the articles I write. But over the course of this last year I missed sharing two audio appearances for my work.
I did post about one of them. See here for my interview about the situation in Armenia.
But back in May I was a guest on The Underground Sessions: Intersection of Faith, Culture, and Politics.
The podcast is hosted by Millington Baptist Church in New Jersey, and they asked me to share my thoughts on the situation in Lebanon.

Of course, the situation in Lebanon grew much worse since then. In August, explosive materials detonated at the Beirut port, and things have still not gone back to normal.
The radio show The Common Good picked up on my article for Christianity Today, about how I explained the blast to my children.
They did not interview me, but engaged with the material and reflected upon it.
Please click here if you would like to listen. The link directs to minute 56 of the show, where the Lebanon segment begins.
Some people have a face for radio. Who knows, maybe I have a voice for newspapers. But as this year comes to a close, amid all the troubles, I can say ‘Amen’ for the life I have.
Thank you for learning along with me.
